Whatever your construction project, a RHINO building design will fulfill all your building needs.

RHINO Metal Building Basics

Drawings showing the seven different types of RHINO steel framing.RHINO standard metal building bay spacing is 20′ and 25′ between main steel frames.  However, optional bay lengths up to 40′ are possible.

We offer a variety of end wall metal building designs, depending upon your specific building demands.

Post and beam endwalls are standard metal building components. Optional “rigid steel frame” end wall metal building designs are best if an addition to the structure is planned for the future, or where a large opening such as an aircraft hangar door is essential.

RHINO’s building consultants will answer all your questions and assist you in determining exactly which of our seven framing styles best fit your application.  Your RHINO metal building design will include the perfect width, length, and height for your specific needs.

RHINO Metal Building Kit Contents

In addition, a standard RHINO metal build kit provides these value-added benefits:

  • 100% commercial-grade rigid-steel framing
  • Prefab metal building components cut, welded, and drilled at the factory for simple bolt-together assembly on the job site
  • Post and beam end walls
  • Clips pre-welded to the frames for easy attachment of girts and purlins
  • High-strength bolts and nuts for strong framing connections
  • Framing for a door opening up to 30’ wide
  • Cover trim for all framed openings
  • Building trim in a choice of colors
  • Fast delivery, typically in 6-7 weeks from order
  • A complete Bill of Lading listing all metal building components
  • 3 sets of Engineer-Stamped Plans with a Letter of Certification
  • An anchor bolt plan
  • A 49-page Installation Manual and Construction DVD

Additional RHINO Steel Building Kit Features

All these superior weatherproofing and quality-enhancing metal building components are also included as part of our standard steel building kit:

A lifetime warranty ensures no red rust will form on the cast zinc head.

A strong, abrasive-resistant, long-lasting EPDM sealing washer provides a tight waterproof seal— even under the harshest weather conditions. The seal also protects from ozone and ultraviolet damage.

This results in a stronger, more durable structure.

These attractive and durable PBR panels feature extra overlap for increased strength and extra water resistance.

Unfortunately, other metal buildings use ordinary “R” panels with shorter overlap.  R-panels produce less metal-to-metal contact and, therefore, a weaker connection.

Galvalume® coats our sturdy steel panels for increased weather defense.  The color baked on top of the Galvalume® provides an additional layer of protection.

The Galvalume® coating carries a 25-year warranty. The color coating has a 30-year warranty on these metal building components.

RHINO’s Extra Waterproofing Features

This ensures a metal-to-metal contact for a tighter seal and improved pest control.

The mastic and double-sided tape for the closure strips is also included as part of the standard RHINO metal building package.

First, it eliminates the need for a 1-1/2″ notch in the concrete around the perimeter of the slab. Thus, your panel will not rest directly on the concrete, causing rust.

Secondly, the formed base trim typically saves an average of four yards of concrete on a 5,000 sq. ft. building—an average $300 savings on the concrete. 

The base trim is available in the same matching colors as the wall panels.

More RHINO Building Options

The RHINO standard package works for almost every application imaginable.  However, we also offer many metal building components and options that further enhance your metal building kit for your specific needs.
